Can a Family Sue For a Victim Being Fatally Shot at a Bar?

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan is an experienced gun injury victim lawyer who represents bar shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Kevin recently shared his thoughts on the legal options available for victims and their families, including their right to sue a negligent bar owner

"Bars, nightclubs, and other establishments that allow the consumption of alcohol have a legal duty to ensure their patrons and employees are safe from preventable dangers. This also includes foreseeable violent crimes, such as stabbings and shootings. Safety precautions may involve hiring trained bouncers, installing sufficient lighting, and monitoring the property with security cameras. These measures are necessary to minimize the risks of preventable violence. Failure on the bar owner to implement proper security can lead to them being found negligent in a civil lawsuit."

"Shootings often take place due to the bar owner's negligence. This may include failing to improve security standards after previous occurrences of violence have taken place on the property. When a fatal bar shooting occurs, the victim's family should be aware of their legal rights. In cases of negligence, bar shooting victims' families could have reason to pursue a civil lawsuit. By consulting with an experienced gun injury victim lawyer, the family can learn the best course of legal action that may lead to financial compensation."
